I have had a large tense hydrocele on my left testicle (abou the size of a small avacado) since i was 13. I am 25, now.
I am going on a trip to Mexico with my girlfriend, and her mom, and her brother, and her brother's girlfriend. My girlfriend of 4 years is the ONLY other person that knows about my hydrocele, besides myself. I've learned that airports now have these AIT (Advanced Imaging Technology) body scanners, instead of the typical metal detectors. I've never flown before, and have no idea what the airport security process is like. And i'm afraid that one of these AIT scanners are going to pick up a false alarm because of my hydrocele, causing them to have to do a pat down, and everything. With my hydrocele being the tense kind, it's quite hard, and i don't want them to think that i have something hiding in that area, and i have to be completely embarassed, and get taken to a private room, and have to show them, or something.
Have any of you flown with a hydrocele, and was it ever a problem?
Sorry if this sounds ridiculous... it's just freaking me out...
